The Values We Live By

No matter where our people are based, these values form the cornerstones of the Kurtosys culture:

Trust
Transparency
Teamwork
Success

All are underpinned by our unconditional respect for our people and our clients.

We care about your wellbeing

Your wellbeing – in every sense of the word – is important to us, and we’re proud of our confidential support mechanism, the Kurtosys Employee Assistance Program. At no cost to you, this program offers all our people efficient professional counselling as well as guidance on matters as wide-ranging as mental health, financial management and legal support. 

Growth and real people at Kurtosys 

One of the markers of a thriving company culture is internal growth. Through innovative thinking and initiative, combined with cultivating an environment where people can see a growth path for their careers, we have multiple stories of our people starting out in one role or position, and then moving up or even across to different roles in their Kurtosys journey.

Being collaborative (not only in your own team, but with others) leads to a curiosity for the bigger picture of how the business works, and often sparks an interest in leadership or even a completely different career path – something some of our people have embraced. It often means starting with small steps, spending time with the team lead and upskilling, and then starting a new career in a supporting environment where you can follow your passion.

Diversity and Inclusion – women in tech

The world of tech is a space where things are rapidly changing – so is the growth and inclusion of women in the tech world. We are proud to have a diverse team that work for us that includes women across all teams in the company, as well as in leadership positions. We spent some time with a few of these driven, passionate women to find out about what sparked their interest in working in the tech space, who influenced them to pursue their careers and what keeps them thriving in their role here at Kurtosys.  

We dig deeper into the teams that we share our time with every day – their backgrounds, skills and how we can do even more to attract women into the tech space. As fast as the world is catching up with equality, there are still challenges for women within the tech industry and how we want to be a part of the paradigm shift that is still needed today.   

Giving back

We proudly give back to a range of beautiful causes every year. This year, we have selected South Africabased Athlone School for the Blind Association, which tutors and cares for 304 partiallysighted, blind and learningchallenged children.  

Socials and Events 

People at Kurtosys are warm and teamoriented, and often, great friendships begin here.   

As a company we value your efforts and want our people to spend time together and celebrate what’s great about Kurtosys people.
